I had Bell’s Palsy several hrs ago and since when I get tired one eye closes more than the other. Would any injection help this?
Anti-wrinkle injections can help to balance the face by relaxing the muscles on the ‘normal’ side of the face. This makes the Bell’s palsy side look less obvious, as the muscles on the opposite side are more relaxed after anti-wrinkle injections, which makes the problem less obvious. As Bell’s palsy is a temporary problem, usually the anti-wrinkle injection and Bell’s palsy wear off in similar time frames.
